Three features and three shorts have been selected for the “Views From Long Island” section at the 2013 Hamptons International Film Festival (HIFF 2013). The “Views From Long Island” section focuses on local filmmakers, landscapes and issues. The films include “BIG SHOT”, “THE MAID’S ROOM” and “KISS THE WATER”.
Directed by Kevin Connolly, a native of Patchogue, NY, who starred as ‘E’ on the hit HBO show Entourage, BIG SHOT is a documentary about the rise and fall of the New York Islanders: how did one Texas millionaire dupe all of Long Island, as well as the NHL? Big Shot will premiere on October 22 on ESPN, as part of the network’s 30 for 30 series.
THE MAID’S ROOM
Feature Narrative; World Premiere
Starring Annabella Sciorra and Philip Ettinger, THE MAID’S ROOM is a haunting thriller about a young woman from Colombia who takes a job as a maid in a Hamptons home. Director Michael Walker (Price Check, Chasing Sleep) is a resident of Bellport, and the film takes place in the Hamptons.
KISS THE WATER
For decades, on the outskirts of Scotland, the enigmatic Megan Boyd learned and perfected the obscure craft of fly-making for fishermen. Her flies were hailed as some of the best ever made and have even been collected as folk art pieces. In his lyrical documentary KISS THE WATER, director Eric Steel, who grew up in Bridgehampton, captures the beauty and mysticism of Boyd and the art of fly-fishing.
